Who will win: Santangelo vs. Tanasugarn

What do you think? I'd say Mara in 2 but I have always wondered how Mara could play on clay with her game. I think that nobody knows how to play against her. Her game is really strange and amazing.

Visit the official Tathiana Garbin's website: http://taxgarbin.free.fr

Good luck also to Francesca Schiavone, Aravane Rezai,and Virginie Razzano

And of course Roger Federer

Re: Who will win: Santangelo vs. Tanasugarn

Tamarine can barely hold good court positioning on this surface. As long as there's no major wobbles from the Italian, ie the serve falls apart, really should be home and dry here

Re: Who will win: Santangelo vs. Tanasugarn

Err.......there were alot of jokes about Pratt's lack of skill on clay in one or two other threads and indeed she ain't great on clay, although she did beat Lepchenko today. But compared to Tamarine on clay, Pratt is like Henin.

Quite simply Tanasugarn is easily the worst claycourter in the top 100. It has been more than 4 years since Tamarine last won a match on clay. In that time she has lost 15. Last year she lost on clay 6-1 6-4 to Teodora Mircic. Haven't heard of Mircic? Maybe that's because she was ranked 556 at the time.

I should add Tamarine is a great grasscourter. I'm sure she is already looking ahead to Wimbledon to help get her through the clay season.

Re: Who will win: Santangelo vs. Tanasugarn

I never understood how a decent player like Tansugarn could be so awful on a surface, but who knows, she prob. has a better chance on green clay.

Re: Who will win: Santangelo vs. Tanasugarn

If Mara loses more than 5 games I will personally go to Charleston and smack her.

The problem is she might be tired with all these singles and doubles matches!
But I bet for a 6-2 / 6-1
